Contemporary hip hop exists in a lofi space, angled towards funk and soul spheres. Raw Soul is a rapper and hip-hop artist with a passion for self-expression. This invariably spills into his work, giving it a force of truth, power, and most importantly authenticity. For his latest release, ‘Alone’ the rapper collaborates with fellow artist 80k to create a compelling scene that is bolstered and chill at the same time.

The track has an ambient melodic web, a stylistic component that blooms with the melancholy of the theme. The mellow ripple of synths carry into the emphatic verses, creating a soft dimension around it. You can see OG hip-hop cultures in it, but both artists have a distinct sonic personality that tempers it and gives it a modern edge. Listeners of Loyle Carner, Tom Misch, and Jehst are sure to enjoy this track.

Raw Soul debuted in 2020 with an EP and has since released four albums and many singles. His stylistic quotients are dynamic, evolving and progressing without losing his signature refreshing core.

The track is available for streaming on popular sites like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Amazon Music!
